    Pros

    Contributions are reviewed, good work ethics are expected and noticed. If the company does well, a small bonus can be added to the annual salary.

    Cons

    Expectation to work more than the daily 9-5. Accomplishment and efforts expected well beyond your work timeframe. Work expectations make working here a tiring effort but your social work might make this rewarding. Higher degrees are expected.

    I worked at Edwin Gould Service for Children full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nonprofit foundation with an endowment that helps poor and underserved NY city kids by supporting organizations that line up with their mission to close the education achievement gap

    Cons

    Not much employee interaction in this closed enviroment of only 5 or 6 employees. Management has prying eyes into your computer use and will confront you about sites you visit if they feel they want to. There is no visual or audio privacy for admins who sit in the midst of this inner sanctum surrounded by higher ups who have offices. Admins and staff are preferred to be much younger because CEO is a "mothering" type who prys and offers unsolicited advice. Be prepared to add domestic duties like serving lunch, cleaning up break area and after board meetings (loading dishwasher) and restocking pantry to your administrative duties.

    Advice to Management

    Save the judgmental and busybody mothering for your own children...not appropriate or appreciated in the work environment.

    Pros

    This agency is genuinely committed to helping families and they are good to their staff. The executive management regularly communicates with staff and makes everyone feel respected.

    Cons

    This is a non profit organization so the salaries are low. Also, this is a small agency so there are few opportunities for advancement.
